Post Relative Visa (Spouse)

Hello everyone its my first time here.

I just wanted to find out normally how long will it take for a Spouse Visa to be adjudicated, I know on the VFS website it says it says 8-10 weeks but is there anyone our there who managed to get it sooner?

I am married to a SA Citizen.

Thank you

My husband also applied for Relative's visa. I am a PR older. It's been 6 weeks now and call centre agent says it is undergoing processing at head office and adjudication as not started. For 6 weeks now!!!!!!

Anyone with such experience?

Thanks,
In the SA Visa Forum Group on Facebook, people there are saying that it is taking an average of 3 months for TRV relative to come out. So hang in there. All the best

I obtained my Relatives permit in 8 weeks... I applied from the VFS office in London.

Best of luck with your visa!

My husband finally collected his visa on the 28th of November 2019. So it took 3 months to be finalized

I was also thinking the exact same thing.... But I hear the CSV takes alot longer and is alot more expensive?!

However I assume with the CSV we have more freedom?
